2015 bottle poured a little over a year later.

The pour is jet black with a bit of creamy carbonation. The smell is amazing. Surprisingly, cinnamon is dominant here with vanilla and caramel notes; somewhat like huna. On the nose, it seems as if it's going to be a sugar bomb, but the taste is quite different. The cinnamon takes a back seat here and is well balanced by some oaky bitterness. It sits nice and thick on the palette. Honestly, the taste was a bit of a letdown after the aromas it gave off.

A pretty solid brew overall. I'd definitely try it again if I saw it.
